Are you ready for the ultimate tale of survival?


Kill or Die
Nina Hardwick has had a rough life since leaving high school, but inside she is still the girl looking for a silver lining. The past several years have left their toll on her psyche, and just as she feels like she’s climbing out of a deep abyss, her life and the lives of millions of others fall into shambles as a virus overtakes the country and leaves a plague of undead armies scouring the land.
In a desperate attempt to get away from the infected, Nina and some neighbors speed out of town, nearly killing a man on a motorcycle. When they stop to rescue him, Nina realizes that he is the one man from her past she never got over, the guy who should have been her high school sweetheart until she messed it up. But this unrequited love, Kevin Savage, says he doesn’t even remember her. Or does he?
Nina, Kevin, and her neighbors head to the wilderness and fight to survive not only the plague but also hunger, cold, their inner demons…and even each other. Will they survive and, more importantly, will her heart?

In the blink of an eye the infected have taken over your neighborhood and survival kicks in.  The two neighbors across the street and Nina take off for her aunt's house in the mountains.  On the way out of town they nearly kill a man on a motorcycle.  They stop and rescue him.  When Nina looks into his eyes she sees someone from her past, someone she never really got over.  

We meet Nina who has had many rough patches in her life.  During the first part of the book the chapters alternate between past and present.  This helps us to see what has transpired over Nina's life.  The true adventure begins as Nina, Kevin, Larry and Vera head out of town to check on Nina's aunt.  Once they get to her house they end up being trapped there.  

This story is about zombie like creatures but there is not a lot of blood and gore (the reason I don't read to many zombie books).  It soon turns to focusing on surviving with out what we now consider the necessities of life, like electricity, running water, etc..  During this journey Nina realizes how she has not really been living life after her husband dies.  Kevin and Nina soon grow close and renew their relationship.

This book made you think about survival if the world was in chaos.  Ms. Jamison did a great job of creating a story that made you think about what was happening and made you feel like you were living the nightmare right alongside the characters.  Keep an open mind with this story and don't think yuck Zombies I am not going to read that book.  Zombies are a very small part and this story is not anything of what you would expect.  Do Nina and Kevin survive?  Will they get to return to their homes and family?  This is a great non traditional Zombie read.  I highly suggest it if you want a story that has suspense, survival skill, relationships, and learning to live for yourself.  

"You can't just stand there and do nothing.  They'll kill you, Nina.  It's you or them.  Kill or die, Nina Davis."  His jaw rippled before he repeated each word with force.  "Kill or Die."

I lay in Kevin’s arms for longer than I could calculate, staring out the window and watching as the sky grew darker.  Part of me wished we could stay like this forever, in this place the world seemed to have forgotten about, away from everything bad and horrible and dark.
That might have been nice, but there was still the question of my kids…and the rest of my family.  I needed to know they were all right, had to find out where they were.  I didn’t know how the hell I was going to do that or when, but I needed to.
Up against my body, he felt strong where I felt weak, warm where I could only sense cold.  He had become to me everything I always knew he was, and the realization that I had fallen in love with him again struck me hard.  It had been an easy slide, one I hadn’t even known I was on until my feet were back on the ground.
I decided there, in his arms, that I wasn’t going to fight it.
But I also wasn’t going to acknowledge it.  After our weird past as teens, I didn’t know what to expect from him in the aftermath.  I only knew this moment, and I was going to cherish it, hold it tightly in my heart like I might clench a locket in my fist, and then I was going to let tomorrow bring what it would.  I would leave this room with no expectations, no hope.
It was something I’d grown pretty good at over the years.
As if he could read my mind, he said, “We should probably head back.”
“Yeah, I was thinking that.  I think a storm’s moving in, don’t you?”  I turned around in his arms.  Part of me didn’t want to.  I was sad—profoundly—but felt like I shouldn’t be drowning in that emotion.  I didn’t want to give away anything in my head.
His voice was soft when he said, “Yeah, I think so, so we shouldn’t screw around.”
I smiled in spite of myself.  “A little late.”
He grinned too, and I imagined that he was feeling inside the same way I was but also wanted to try to put on a happy face.  But he pulled me close and kissed me tenderly.  He didn’t say anything, though, even after his lips left mine.
I wanted to acknowledge the significance of his earlier revelation, even though part of me was afraid to go there, so afraid of what the truth was.  But I had to know.  “Do you really remember me…or were you just saying that?”
